The fireworks did not happen for me. The boys and Chubby Hubby went to watch them but I was way too tired. Diva and I stayed and watched through the trees at our house. We only watched for a few minutes before were threw in the towel and decided to gracefully end the celebration by heading to bed and let the exploding fireworks lull us to sleep. Even though we bowed out a bit early, this 4th of July was one of the BEST! Can't wait for next year!!!!
I did more than just celebrate the 4th (read: eat and drink).....I had my very first run with my oldest child. I like to think I am a great influence on him (patting myself on the back). He thinks I am the coolest person in the world because I run(yeah, so I may have a big head about it). He is signed up for his very first 5K in August. We are going to run it together. I am very excited because he is so excited. We went for our very first training run together this weekend and he did very well! Almost too well, I was struggling to keep up. We did a total of 3.36 miles and there were only a couple of walk breaks (probably because I needed them). He made it look easy and he is ready to rock on with more training.
I hope everyone had a safe holiday weekend.
